1/28/20 Title = What is Lively Writing? There's nothing women hate more than other women succeeding: That's why they keep stabbing me in the back, says Katie Hopkins As I walked into my office early one morning, the frosty atmosphere hit me as surely as if I'd opened a freezer door. Conversations stopped. Eyes swivelled away. I swear even the wall clock stopped ticking and the printer ceased humming. Obviously, everyone had been talking about me. I'd barely got one arm out of my jacket before the barbed comments began: 'That's a nice NEW suit Katie,' sniffed a secretary. 'I wish I could afford to buy clothes like that.' 'Lunching out again today, Katie?' snapped another, pointedly stalking past me with her home-made sandwiches into the fridge. 'I hear that new restaurant by the river is nice . . . not that I could afford to eat there, of course. Not like you.' Exploring Real Writing Choose an opinion article on a topical issue. Glue it across a double page; highlight and annotate the impact of the following features: Personal opinion -Different types of pronouns Use of exaggerated adjectives, verbs, adverbs

Sentence types imperatives, rhetorical questions, declaratives; simple and/or complex Use of pun, humour or sarcasm -Specific example/anecdote How to annotate: Explain what the writer is suggesting/saying about the topic in your own words. Explain impact the feature has on the tone of the article. 3. Experiment with the Conventions Respond to one of these questions: What grinds your gears? What makes you happy? What makes you laugh? What do you love? What makes me, me? Heres mine - Babies! Babies make me chuckle to no end. Fat babies, cute babies, curly haired babies, toothless

babies; the list goes on and on. Show me a baby and I will find something so adorably cute and squishy about it that it will make me smile from ear to ear. Now, show me a video of a baby falling over or doing a hilarious dance, or even just giggling uncontrollably (like the ones on the Cow and Mate advert) and you have hit the jackpot! I may just double over and clutch my stomach and laugh until I die. I cant put my finger on it. I dont know why. A baby is just baby after all. Maybe it is their innocence; their lack of inhibitions or, maybe its just because they are so unbelievably adorable. I suppose we all need something to make us chuckle at the end of a long hard day my medicine is funny babies. Peer Assessment Task: Did you create your own distinct voice in your writing?
